We...have...a...winner!

The judges grant that Tell's first two guesses didn't count, since that was indeed before the question was corrected to three. The judges also applaud Tell for figuring out the correct approach to the question, since 1975 was of course the bottleneck year.

BTW, I said two at first because of all the songs they played in 1975, the only one I didn't bother to check was Me and My Uncle, since they played it so damned many times I figured they had to have played it in 1976. But once it appeared in Tell's first set of two guesses, I figured I ought to check just to make sure, and turns out they didn't play it in 1976--one more reason to love that year.

Congratulations, Tell! No one can take this little thought-trophy away from you.

Funny about M&MU: it was the only one from memory that I KNEW they played in 75, 6-17, and then, of all the shows I went to in 76, I couldn't recall it...so, because I knew they played it so many times, it was my first guess, which I thought was going to be wrong (like you, fig'd they'd have snuck it in sometime in 76). I was just picking it on the basis of knowing it'd been played EVERY yr...thought many others would've been skipped once in a while...til I focused on 75 completely, I was at a loss after that first guess.

Now, I guess I like your trivia games afterall (don't you hate that?). I was in an esp good mood cause the Lakers haven't completely folded up--yet.
